Middlemarch
George Eliot
Literature
Jul 28, 2018
At the center of George Eliot’s vast portrait of the provincial city of Middlemarch, its society and inhabitants, is the story of Dorothea Brooke, a “home epic” of a bright, brave young woman learning how to live and what to live for. Most memorable of Middlemarch’s characters, however, is no character at all, but the imaginative, intuitive, profoundly discerning narrative voice that meditates upon the events and personalities it describes with sympathy and magnanimity.

I met James Mustich at the 2018 ALA conference and when he asked me for one of my favorites, I told him that I had recently read and loved Middlemarch. It remains in my heart as one of my favorite books of all time.
